Stealing and petty thieving is
rampant in almost every building
at Varsity according to reports received by the Ubyssey. Lockers

"ploked" and anything left repoalng

Maury Van Vliet waa vehement
in what he had to say about the
matter. "Everything that Is left
lying around the gymnaalum disappears; nothing aeema safe unless it
is under lock and key. During the
Alberta campaign here one of our
players lost Ave dollars."
The student mentioned was apparently the only felow who neglected to bring his wallet to Van
Vliet's offlce, to have It locked away
ln safety.
The reault waa that the sneak-

Maury also said that, "the situation ln the gym ls made worae this
year by the inferior locker accommodation. In many cases now,
there are as many as tour men to
a locker so that some of the fellows
are forced to leave their clothes
outside the locker. Any valuables

Miss Moore, superintendent of
the Women's Athletic Department,
said "Although nothing has been
actually reported stolen, there are
many things that are borrowed and
not returned!"
She stressed that absolutely nothing was  secure  if lt were not kept
under lock and key.
The same business is going on in
the Men's Common Room in the Arts
The Ubyssey was told that students had lost money, shoes and
books, not through carelessness but
from padlocked  lockers.
A padlock, however means nothing. If the sneak-thief has no key
to flt a lock, he saws through the
steel itself. One lock in particular
had been cut clean through and
about $10.00 worth of books removed from inside.

Political Groups Should
Be Allowed Says Forum
By a vote of 53 to 17. the Parliamentary Forum supported the resolution before the house, "That the
students on the campus of the University of British Columbia should
be free to organize politically," at a
debate held on Monday in Arts 100.
The leader for the affirmative,
Robert Hayman, spoke forcibly
about the necessity of freedom of
speech  and  political  thought.
He referred to the fundamental
purpose of a university as being an
attempt on the part of the university to teach the student to think
for himself. Political organization
on the campus would result In such
a stimulation of student thought.
His most powerful argument, he expressed in moving terms:
"It  pains  me   to  see  the  deplor
able political ignorance on this campus."
The leader of the opposition, Bernard Reed, lashed the house with a
fiery speech that was later described as "fantastic"; and spent some
considerable time in giving a fanciful picture of the evils of the
present political  system.
His opponents easily refuted his
numerous arguments, that  political organisation would foster nar-
row-mlndedneaa,    would    prevent
self-thought,    and    would    oause
campus  atrlfe  and sectionalism.
After  the   two  leaders   had   concluded   their   speeches,   the   debate
was thrown open to the house, and
numerous  speakers  from  the  floor
presented their views and opinions,
those taking part in the discussion
being N.  Depoe,  A.  MacDonald, F.
Thorneloe,   J.   Corbett,   M.   Brown,
and  others.
East Meets
The annuel East versus West debate, one of the highlights of the
debating year, will take place on
Friday evening in the Oak Room
of Hotel Vancouver.
U. B. C. repreaented by Jim Macdonald and Morris Belkin, will oppose the universities of McMaster
and  Ottawa,  represented  by  Norman Dobbs and Gerard Gobeille.
The aubject of the debate, "Resolved that Democracy ia suitable
only in periods of economic pros-
parity," hss already been teated
at the U.B.C.  Forum   end   has
proven highly controversial.  The
affirmative   will    be    upheld   by
Norman    Dobbs,    of    McMaster
University, has twice defeated the
team    representing    the    National
Federation of Canadian University
Students and has been a finalist in
three     inter-university     debating
He is a theological student, having acted as student minister in
several churches.
Dobbs' colleague, Gerard Gobeille,
is representing Ottawa University.
Gobeille has twice been a member
of the team that won the Canadian
championships in inter-university
radio debates.
He is an honors student with
interests in rugby, dramatics and
student council activity.
During the past two years Gobeille   has   been   employed   as   a
grave digger in the largest cemetery in Western Massachussetts.
There he is rated as a "six-man"
—he digs six graves a week.
The  team   which   U.B.C.  has   selected   cannot   boast   of   such   extensive   debating   experience.    Jim
Macdonald will be competing in his
flrst major debate on Friday night.
Morris Belkin has had some experience  in  debating  but  never  in
inter-university  contests.    He  was
the leader of the team which won
Pacific Coast supremacy in Jewish
fraternal debating last year.
Film Material
It  Sought
An appeal ls being made to all
those having good photographic
material suitable for use ln an historical  film of the  University.
The Department ot University Extension Is asking for any material
motion or still, regardless of size,
which will be of interest in such a
photographic history.
This historical film Is to be made
under the supervision of Dr. Shrum,
Director of the Department of University Extension, in addition to the
documentary film of present-day
life at U.B.C. now being shot on
the   campus   by   the   Film   Society.
On Wednesday and Friday of last
week Alms of a similar historical
nature were shown to the faculty
and members of the Film Society.
These Alms, showing the early
days of the province, were of value
in illustrating how still 'pictures
used in a moving film can be given
motion and also showed how still
shots were incorporated into the
film by alternating them with moving film of more recent date, thus
relieving the monotony of a series
of straight  stills.

are asked to bring them into the

Members of the International
Relations Club received a shock
Saturday noon when they learned
that a radio script prepared by
them for use on Varsity Time this
evening had allegedly violated the
Canadian laws regarding broadcasting, and could not be used on
the air.
The "offending" script was put
together by members of the club,
and the cast had been rehearsing
for the progream, scheduled for
CJOR this evening at 9 o'clock.
The I.R.C. had taken excerpts
from speeches of such notables as
Mme. Chiang Kai-Shek, Hitler,
Mussolini, President Roosevelt and
Premier Chamberlain, and had
worked the quotations into a dramatic treatment of the international situation,
Canadian radio regulations forbid political dramatisations, and
the I.R.C. script was interpreted by
the CJOR legal advisor as such.
The station did not wish to take
the responsibility for the broadcast, and pending further Investigation, the I.R.C. will have to wait
before taking part In Varsity Time.
Meanwhile, program director
Strruant Robertson, together with
his staff, arranged for a substitute program by moving ahead a
broadcast planned for later in the
This evening, Varsity Time will
feature musical selections, together
with an interview with Ubysesy
Editor Kemp Edmonds regarding
the twenty-first birthday of the
Publications Board, a talk by Extension Director Dr. G. M. Shrum,
information on the Winnipeg students' conference, and other short
features depicting campus activities.
Dr. George Pringle, well known
to university students for his
unique tales of the Yukon, will
speak in Arts 100 at noon, Wednesday, under the auspices of the National Conference Committee.
"The Place of the Church" Is the
subject selected by Dr. Pringle, and
with his depth of experience and
sincerity in facing facts he is well
qualified to tackle this problem.
Mingling with thaf host of fanatical worshippers of the god Gold
on the "Trail of '98," Dr. Pringle
moved in vivid scenes of primeval
madness and learned to know men.
1914 found Padre Pringle with
his Seaforth Highlanders en route

displayed by this demonstrator of
practical religion inspired Ralph

Topics Cut
By Teachers
A further rnarrowlng down of
topics'was the main item"of discussion at the meeting of the B. C.
Teachers' Federation University
Branch, held last Tuesday.
The outstanding impediment to
each suggestion is the lack of Canadian material. It will be necessary for the teachers in this group
to collect data and relate it to the
Canadian situation.
Such questions as "Do we need a
Canadian N.R.A.?' 'Do we need Inflation in Canada?' and 'What are
the aims of education?' have been
placed on the bulletin for later
The teachers are now working on
a plan by which they will receive
credit for essays written in connection with the rurarl district forums. If this plan materializes,
essays will be written individually,
and the ideas and data which they
contain later printed in the form
of a pamphlet.
Definite arrangements have been
made, Dr. G. M. Shrum announced,
for a radio broadcast from the
campus. A speaker from U.B.C.
will discuss the chosen topics on
this program which will be heard
over the B. C. Network.
The dancers, arrayed in novel
mortar-boards and straw-hats, will
have a matchless opportunity to
mimic the hard-working, dignified
Artsmen, on the hardy tons ot soil,
the Aggies.
The ballroom, lavishly bedecked In a blase ef unlveralty
color, will echo to the wild and
frivolous cheers of the merrymakers, who will be aeatsd, during supper, at Innumerable tables,

be a monstrous pep meeting today,
Tuesday, in the Auditorium. With
the finest orchestra ln Western
Canada appearing personally, the

Special copies of Arts and Aggie

momentous occasion, to supply the

Keyserlinck Urges
Modified Version
Of Democracy
Wednesday two hundred students
interested in the "Status of Democracy," heard Robert Keyserlinck in Arts  100 at noon.
Mr. Keyserlinck stated that we as
individuals need a new and modified
definition of democracy.
In his opinion, a democracy depends on the ability of the people
who do the choosing being able to
judge what Is most needed. "This
is difficult," he went on to say, "In
countries where there is a very
complex form of society, and where
the people are illiterate, and where
there is a national unity lacking."
Mr. Keyserlinck informed his
heaters that in Germany, prior to
the advent of Hitler, there were
thirty-six parties making impossible political promises. It was because of this that the whole parliamentarian system was discredited.

The decision of the Parliamentary Forum yesterday,
"That students should be free to organize politically" is a significant indication of the new trend in undergraduate thought.
The pre-depression student with his synical indifference
to reality, and his impractical and hysterical radicalism, has
been replaced by a saner type of individual. The modern
college student realizes that politics and government are frequently in the hands of ignorant and unscrupulous men, but
instead of running away from reality he is willing to get in
and clean up the situation.
University graduates have many duties to society, and
not the least of these obligations Is that of governmental
In the face of these facts, the University authorities, the
Students' Council blindly continue to oppose the formation of
political groups on the campus. Surely this is nothing less
than a flagrant infringement of personal liberty, and is completely inconsistent with the democratic ideals of higher education.
Intercollegiate competition in Canadian football has netted the Alma Mater Society this year a loss of some $800.
And still the team has not brought back the Hardy Cup.
These facts are disappointing, it is true.   The question is now heard: "Should the University abandon the
Western Intercollegiate Football League?"
The fact that we have not had a championship team is o_»
course no argument against this competition. We are certainly not out of our class, as we were two years ago trying
the American game. And we do not play solely to win; we
play flrst, because intercollegiate competition does more than
anything else to allow expression of that will-o'-the-wisp, University spirit; secondly, because the publicity associated
therewith is highly beneficial, and thirdly, because some such
basis of friendship with our sister western Canadian universities is a happy thing.
The question resolves itself, then, to: "Is this intercollegiate competition worth $800 if year?" The best answer is
an evasion of the question: 'But surely in future it will not
cost so much."
Intercollegiate football is highly desirable. Perhaps
our student council can reach an agreement with the
other universities whereby we would not stand to lose so
much. And perhaps we can find some way of increasing
the gate receipts in Vancouver.
This year's setback should not discourage the council.
We want intercollegiate football. In a few years the Vancouver public will be enthusiastic enough to make the series
profitable. Correct publicity, plenty of it, and a winning
team, would soon put it on a paying basis.
Let us arrange for a continuation of the series next year,
so that we may enjoy intercollegiate games, and so that we
may build up a revenue-producing heritage for future generations at U.B.C.
It's a strange situation, but a
good many Vancouverites judge the
university student body by the
stories that appear on the social
pages of city dailies. It may be
stranger yet, but it^s still true that
to a good majority of this group,
social news of campus doings produces a favorable reaction.
For the most part, girls writing
these accounts of who-wore-what-
and-the-color-of - the - flowers have
given the campus a break. They
have never made it seem that we
were a bunch of dining-and-danclng
parasites. They have even gone as
far as to point out that the U.B.C.
social calendar was set up with a
view to spacing functions so that
studies wouldn't  suffer.
With this in mind, it seems
strange that every now and then
student officials get heated over the
fact that campus dances reach the
social pages. Such an attitude does
not flt In very well with our present
efforts at improving public relations between the campus and the
general public.

Oo you know what it is to be
ignored? To have the world go on
without you, and without seeming
to feel any loss that you are not
present? I, so help me, am being
grossly ignored by a gent who is,
to my mind, one of the last of an
old school whose members are passing away too swiftly.
I refer to one J. Meredith Tutt,
who has been addressing letters to
my columnistic colleagues, Beggar
Student and Student Prince, at the
rate of three or four a week . . .
and never a line to me.
Is it that Tutt has no appreciation of real critical writing, that
he falls only for the pseudo-artistic
ravings of these other two lads,
who can write for hours without
saying a thing.
*    *    •
After several hours of study,
I have uncovered some facts that
may interest Mr. Tutt. Consulting
one of those charts that tell you
all about your family tree, I found
that In the year 1693 a third cousin
of my great-to-the-flf tieth grandfather was named Toot. Now, a
brief consultation of the Tutt family tree revealed that in the period
1640 and 1724 this noble family had
fallen into ill-repute with the king,
and members' disguised themselves
by changing the name to Toot.
I believe, sir, that from this I
can draw the inference that you
and I are closely related, that we
have something in common in that
third cousin-business.
My colleagues challenge you to a
duel, Tutt. No such combat for me.
I take this opportunity to invite
you to tea-and-crumpets-at-three-
thirty-in-the-caf some day this
week.   I shall await your answer.

S.C.M. protested their banishment
from the Montreal campus ln a
handbill Issued there early last
week following the Council edict
forbidding them the privileges of a
student society.
The McOill Council ban resulted
from the infringement of a resolution adopted by the student executive fo.rbiddlng -campaigns of canvassing on the campus without the
authorization of the Student Council when the S.C.M. began their annual financial campaign as per schedule two days after.
The S.C.M. takes this resolution
as being a direct prohibition of
their annual financial campaign,
which they claim has been going on
for 40 years, and brands the action
of council 'illegal and undemocratic," especially since lt was communicated to the Campaign Committee only "one day" ln advance.
The S.C.M. declares that an Issue

do so, a line of procedure which the
S.C.M. did not follow.
In reply to the charge of attempted control of the actions of Individual students he stated, "Should

Canadian   Club
Offers  $100
Two scholarships are being offered, one for literary competition
and the other for post-graduate
scientific  research.
The Women's Canadian Club of
Toronto are offering $100 for the
best play, suitable for radio production, submitted before February
16th, 1938. The topic is to be of
some event in Canadian History or
phase of Canadian life.
Post-graduate scholarship is offered for scientific research by the
Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, and Is valued at £260,
approximately $1,000, per annum.
Names   must   be   submitted   before
I June  1st,  1938.
Further information may be obtained at the Registrar's offlce.
Equally important as the actual
actors in any production are the
committees which remain behind
the scenes doing the preparatory
work. Committees for the Players'
Club Xmas plays have been formed
and are now busily engaged making
everything ready for the opening
The students themselves are responsible for all phases of the
plays, from costumes and make-up
to programmes and circulars.
All committee work entails con
siderable time and energy. Those
on the properties committee must
scout all over town looking for
"props" which are exactly in keeping with the period and atmosphere
of the play. Members of the costumes committee have more prosaic
work; they must cut out and sew

and the Vancouver Institute in the
auditorium   Saturday  evening.
Discussing world events of the
past year, Prof. Soward spoke to
an audience of over 1000 persons.
"The past year," he stated, "has
been marked in Great Britain by an
overwhelming will to peace." The
speaker pointed out that Britain
has played a cautious if not exciting role in recent international
Commenting on the "piracy patrol" policy which followed the Ny-
on Conference this summer, Prof.
Soward showed that a stronger
front brings about a more cautious
policy on the part of the aggressor.
The Spanish revolution, which
Prof. Soward called a "little World
War," has involved more intervention than has ever been seen in
The speaker touched on the ex-,

this expense may have improved I
trade in certain raw materials,
armaments are a waste in peace
time and also are a dangerous factor on which to base prosperity in
uncertain timea.
Reviewing the Slno - Japanese
conflict, Prof. Soward pointed out
Japan's precarious financial situation. In addition, trouble between
Russia and Japan must be considered when looking at the far-eastern situation.

The resolution was, "Resolved
that the present system of coeducation is detrimental to the best

Course Outlined
H. B. Smith Speaker
At Academy
Of Sciences
"The teaching of science" was
the subject of discussion at the B.
C. Academy of Sciences Wednesday
night in Sc. 200. H. B. Smith, chairman of the committee for revision
of science courses in the high
schools, opened the discussion by
outlining the defects ot the science
course used in schools until 1936.
He then outlined the revised
course which his committee had
drawn up. The revision is a very
general outline including a survey
of matter, energy, water, the earth's
crust, and life on the earth.
This course ls planned to follow
the general science course now being taught ln grades eight and nine.
It will cover two years high school
and will be followed by optional
courses in specialized sciences in
the matrlc year, Mr. Smith said.
After quoting many opinions on
the teaching of sciences In the secondary schools today, Mr. Smith
summarized: "The trend of science
teaching is towards a general science  course."
He said that rather than study
two years of chemistry or physics
the student who was completing
his school career in metric would
benefit  much   more   by   a   general

This Week in Review
By r. t. Mckenzie
The four intermediate alms of the Japanese war strategists are generally thought to be: 1. The virtual annexation of the Ave northern
provinces of China which lie between China proper and Manchukuo;
2. The driving of a wedge between Soviet-influenced outer Mongolia and
China proper; 3. Control of Shanghai, financial heart of China; 4. Demoralization of Nanking, the spiritual centre of the new China. Coupled
with these Immediate alms ls the oft expressed desire for a "fundamental solution," which probably can mean little else than the complete
overthrow of Chiang Kal Shek's government ln China and the crushing
of the Kuomingtang movement.
Last week saw the last of the Chinese defenders driven from the
smouldering ruins of the Chinese section of Shanghai—after a battle
which for its wasting effect on the Invaders many thought might parallel the battle of Verdun—and Japan thus completed another step ln her
campaign designed to bring China to her knees.
Meanwhile, ln the less publicized area of North China, despite strong
Chinese resistance, Japanese troops advanced steadily. South of the
Oreat Wall, they have now nearly reached the Yellow River. The provinces of Sulyan and Chahar have been over-run, thus forming the effective wedge to prevent the dreaded Influence of the Soviet Union penetrating into China.
With winter setting in, the Japanese are said to have reached and
even exceeded their objectives in North China. Their comparatively
slow start seems to have been due more to the necessity of awaiting
reinforcements from Japan than to any really effective Chinese resistance.
Aa In the ease of the defenae of their country by the Ethiopian
warriors, the western world seems to have apent ao muoh time sympathising with the vlotlms of aggression and admiring thslr oour-
agaous stand that It haa eome of somewhat of a rude shook to realise
that force haa again triumphed over the rule of law.
The Important question now remaining Is how Japan Intends to set
about the task of destroying Chiang Kai Shek's government. Will she
halt her victorious armies on the banks of the Yellow River and in the
vicinity of Shanghai or will she attempt further military operations
toward Nanking, symbol of China's newly found unity? Japanese activity toward the close of last week seemed to indicate a choice of the
latter alternative.
Far away from Oriental hostilities, at Brussels, Belgium—"a city
noted for its healthful climate"—a parley of some considerable moment
was in session last week. Upon its outcome may well depend three very
important things: 1. The immediate future of the principle of international co-operation against aggression; 2. The future of China; 3. The
ultimate future of the white man's prestige in the Orient.
In the century-old Palais des Academies, the representatives of 14
nations assembled to discuss the Far Eastern conflict, acting under the
terms of the Nine Power Pact, which, signed ln Washington in 1922
guarantees the soverlgnty and territorial integrity of China.        •
The msetlng faeed a delicate situation. China was prsssnt,
but Japan waa abaent. Staly waa obviously acting aa the Japaness
spokesman. None of the other powers Invited and In attendance waa
ready or willing to Interfere actively In the War Eastern hostilities,
•aid chief Amerloan delegate, Norman H. Davla, "We have not
eome with the expectation ef working miracles, but with the Intention of appealing to reason."
The flrst step in this appeal to reason took the form of a series of
pleadings to Japan to attend the conference. After lt became somewhat more than obvious that no headway could be made in this direction, the parley finally on Saturday ot last week brought In a draft
declaration which pointed out in strong terms that Japan's military
action in China was illegal and amounted to defiance of the whole world.
It was also said, "to envisage strong measures" If Japan refused to
make peace with China. Unless this threat is made a reality it may
become—along with the numerous unredeemed threats made against the
Fascist powers over Spanish Intervention—another nail ln the coffin
of the prestige of the democratic  powers.
One year ago this month in Berlin, Germany and Japan signed a
pact,against the Communist International. They agreed to consult with
each other concerning communist activities and ways of combatting
the spread of Communism. The pact was generally regarded as an
attempt to ring the Soviet Union with hostile nations to make certain
that in any war, Far Eastern or European, Russia would have to flght
on tyvo fronts thousands of miles apart.
Last week, power politics became more than ever a reality as Italy
adhered to this pact. In some quarters this act was seen as a counter
move to President Roosevelt's Chicago speech, lest that momentous
address be taken as a rallying cry for the formation of a common democratic front against dictatorships.
The full significance of the Rome-Berlin axis was also revealed last
week when the terms of the verbal understanding recently concluded
between Hitler and Mussolini bcame known in London. Each country
is to assist the other iu the event ef either being involved in a major
war with more than one great power. Such understandings are peculiarly reminiscent of the Alliance and Entente days which preceded the
Great War.
British foreign policy continued its rather remarkable course of
attempting to placate the Fascist powers. Lord Halifax—thought to
be one of the pro-German members of the British cabinet—prepared
to leave to confer with Hitler in Berlin. Sir Robert Vansittart, permanent head of the British foreign office, and Italian Ambassador Count
Grandi in London, were making such favorable contacts that one section of the Italian press actually convinced Itself that Britain was about
to join the anti-communist pact.
Prime Minister Chamberlln was thought to be contemplating another friendly note to Mussolini. . . . The moribund non Intervention com-
Students' Council last week decided that lt would not shoulder
the responsibility for any accident
that might happen when members
of a proposed women's rifle club
were shooting, and unanimously defeated a motion to bring the "campus Amazons" under W.A.A. jurisdiction.
,   Malcolm   Brown,   In   his   usual
role   of  warning   eouncll   againat
pitfalls   It   might   enoounter,   declared  that "It would be  an   Imposition to ask us to sponsor suoh
a thing."
Jean  Meredith added to the discussion   by   noting   that   the   girls
weren't learning rifle technique for
national defence, they just wanted
to have a little  fun.
Brown took a second opportunity
to register his disapproval by stating that the girls "have been going
around with a bunch of junior subalterns, and their minds were filled
with shooting and things."
"Some    of    them    don't    even
know  where  the   target   la,"   de-
olarsd  usually-qulst  Bob  Smith.
Council   defeated   the   motion   to
have the rifle club Instituted under
the A.M.S.
William Answers
Feminine Call
IPU)—That realism- in acting can
certainly be obtained by radio actors was shown last week at the
University of Alberta.
The CKUA players were producing "The Man Who Discovered
Sleep" and were really getting into the spirit of the story. The feminine lead became particularly emotional as she pounded on a door
and called, between heart-rending
sobs, for her "William."
A few mlnutea later a rather
breathless figure appeared at the
studio door wanting to know It anything was wrong. "I heard pounding and cries," he explained hastily, "and I thought perhaps ... I
wondered  .  .  ."
He was assured that nothing was
wrong and went back to his work

mittee continued to mumble in London about a plan to send a commission to Spain to find out how many "volunteers" there are there—a plan
originally brought forward last July. Meanwhile, General Franco, with
probably 100,000 Fascist troops to assist him, prepared for what might
be his final aasault on Loyalist Spain.
Fascism appeared to have obtained Its flrst foothold ln the Western
hemisphere as President Vargas of Brazil promulgated a new constitution which provided for dissolution of the Senate and Chamber ot
Deputies, as well as state legislatures and municipal chambers. Foreign
Minister Brandao explained, however, that this was merely "Democracy in the modern sense.'
The deepest human Interest note of this week was probably the
death of that lonely figure, Ramsay MacDonald. Branded by his former
Labor colleagues who once worshipped him, a traitor to their common
cause, more or less Ignored by the Conservatives whom he courageously
joined when he became convinced that even if lt meant breaking with
his old friends he must form a national government to save Britain, he
may well rank aa one of the tragic figures in British history. One awaits
with Interest the appearance of a biography.

Son of Chinese Consul
Optimistic About War
Optimism for China's chances for
victory in the conflict with Japan
was expressed last week by Johnson Pao, son of the Chinese Consul-
Oeneral in Vancouver, and a student at U.B.C.
"China waa  fully  prepared  for
the   war,"   Pao   remarked.     "She
has  1500 planea of the latest design  built In  U.S.A.,  England and
Germany.    Japan'a    air    fleet    is
muoh older and alower.
"China   has   also   a   greater   man
power from which to draw her armies   with   her   450,000,000   population   as   compared   to   Japan's   100,-
"Chinese finance is also much
more stable than Japan's, and her
credit  is  much   better."
Describing some of the atrocities
committed by the Japanese, Johnson Pao told of 200 Chinese college
students who had been studying in
Japan at the outbreak of hostilities,
and were sent home.
"As they were leaving their ship
at   Shanghai  they  were   fired   upon
by Japanese machine gunners, and
of the entire 200 innocent students
only 35 escaped alive, and most of
these were seriously wounded."
"This war for China now has
simply a defensive character: she
fights because she wants to defend
her territorial integrity and sovereignty. China will fight in self-
defense to the last man."
Referring to a Japanese statement In the Ubyssey some time
ago, Pao declared that It was preposterous to say that the Loukou-
chiao Incident had been exaggerated by the Chinese.
"May I ask to whom Loultouchlao
belongs? Or if China is unreasonable In resisting an armed invasion
of her own territory?"

Gladiola number three goes to

charging and blocking has been a
marked feature of this year's grid

blocking and all-round effectiveness

more than the odd backslap for

But the thing that really "got"

Manitobans To
Change Policy
WINNIPEG, Man., Nov. 2 (W.I.
P.U.)—A revision of the University
of Manitoba's athletic policy to allow for participation in more intercollegiate activities, is being expected to be made public very
The Athletic Board of Control,
which Is responsible for the organization of all athletic activities at the University, have recently been looking to alumnus
and other outside support for
financial aid in order to enable
it to carry out a broader athletic
policy for Manitoba.
Faced  with a lack of student
interest in Varsity athletics, and
hampered  by   a   correspondingly
small budget, the Board has been
forced to curtail all Intercollegiate activity to a minimum. The
criticism of other Western  Universities of this policy has been
frequent,   and   Manitoba   has  on
occasions been accused of refusing  to  send  a  team  into  inter-
varsity   competition   unless   success was certain.
Criticism from other sources and
personal dissatisfaction in the state
of affairs has led to a series of conferences which may shortly result
in a new athletic policy, although
no announcement has been made.
All men aro asked to turn out In
the gym at B p.m. Friday, November  19th.
If we've missed some-one, pardon
our forgetful nature. Everyone of
this year's football squad really
gave all for Alma Mammy. For
sheer spirit, and indomitable perseverance against odds, they're the
tops, ,and probably will be for
several moons yet.
You think that's laid on thick?
Then just try winning three
straight games after dropplhg
four tilts, three by close scores,
especially after being the centre
of a lot of mud-slinging attacks
on the part of writers, critics and
their fellow-studenta.
